INSPIRATIONAL EDUCATIONAL ENTERTAINING
Scotland's Housing Expo is a great day out for everyone during August 2010!
There's lots to do for young people and adults alike with a changing programme of events, workshops, seminars, talks and exhibits throughout the month – and its all free for kids!
52 fantastic houses created with the future in mind showcase the latest ideas on design and sustainability to promote eco-friendly lifestyles, respectful of natural resources.
Stimulating events on the theme of buildings and gardens for adults and young people will inspire all of us who care about where we live people, as well as providing insights for people who design or build homes, and others with an interest in design and the idea of living in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way.
See below for up to date views of the houses on view at the Scotland's Housing Expo site.
